  • Hi hayyam

    Thank you for your asking. Kindly provide the information below so that we can better assist you.

    1. Your current firmware version

    Settings>System>About Phone>Software information

    2. Does the issue appear right after any system/apps' download or update?

    3. Please try to enter "Safe Mode". If the SMS works well in Safe Mode yet the issue remains out of Safe Mode, please check on any disturbance from the installed 3rd party apps.

  • Hi hayyam

    Thank you for your reply. I can duplicate the same situation on my phone, too. Because it is a single app issue, kindly report to the app developer, Outlook, for further assistance. Sorry for any inconvenience it may be caused. 

    If you face the issue for other apps, please check

    long press Home screen>Preferences>Unread counts badge>App list, make sure to tick all the preferred apps in the checklist

  • Dear Christine

    may be it is related with ZENUI Launcher
